7 North Street, Asbjorn Lonvig
Inspired by archutecture.
 7 North Street - in Danish it is Nørregade 7 - in Haderslev, Denmark. That's the local headquarters of an insurance company. Haderslev belonged to Germany until 1920. You might see that in the architecture.
22 North Street, Asbjorn Lonvig
Inspired by archutecture.
Inspired by the headquarters of Jyske Bank in Haderslev, Denmark.
Haderslev architecture is kind of German. We know what New Amsterdam is. But Little Hamburg might be appropriate for Haderslev.
Haderslev belonged to Germany until 1920.
You might see that in the architecture.

Aros Art Museum, Asbjorn Lonvig
Aros Art Museum in Aarhus, Denmark. At the moment you enter the lounge, your breath is taken away. Where am I? I'm totally confused. Suddenly I am indeed not in the middle of nowhere. I'm in New York. And the architect is renowned Frank Lloyd Wright. I'm at 1071 Fifth Avenue at 89th Street in New York. 1071 Fifth Avenue at 89th Street in New York is of course the address of Guggenheim Museum. Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece on Fifth Avenue was built in 1959.
Blue Kangaroo, Asbjorn Lonvig

And then it is inspired by the well known Australian kangaroo traffic sign.
Blue Sky - Guggenheim, Asbjorn Lonvig
Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece on Fifth Avenue in New York. Of course The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1071 5th Avenue at 89th Street, New York. And New York is yellow cabs, black people, white people, red light, green light, street noise, Hotel Lexington, homeless, alcohol, narcotics, penthouse, Fifth Avenue, Thrump Tower, fancy restaurants, delis, Central Park, ally, backyard, Guggenheim, glory, misery, Museum of Modern Art, China Town, Rockefeller Center, millionaires, beggars, subway, Broadway, tourists, diplomats, UN, Metropolitan... Amazing how Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture is contemporary.
In Chicago I saw several of his houses that looked as if they were built yesterday. One was from 1909. The blue sky above symbolizes divinity. Frank Lloyd Wright had a rare gift, sure.
Divinity?

Everest Blue, Asbjorn Lonvig
Inspired by the highest mountain in the world, Mont (or Mount) Everest in Nepal. And the wish to climb it - soon! - Might it be like seeing a Henri Matisse exhibition at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art?
Seeing the great Master's colorful simplicity paper cut-outs, and letters telling the stories behind. Letters telling me, that he worked from 1941 to 1954 in exactly the same way that I do. A radical renewal that made it possible for Matisse to create what he had always struggled for:
"I have needed all that time to reach the stage where I can say what I want to say."
Fight to the death - Gladiator's Helmet, Asbjorn Lonvig
Inspired by Colosseum, by Gladiators and their fight to the death.

See about le Louvre on Wihipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Inspired by Basilica San Marco, The Doge's Palace - Palazzo Ducale, The tower on St. Mark's Place and sailing on the Grand Canal in Venice.
In The Companion Guide to Venice, Hugh Honour describes the Piazza San Marco as "beautiful at all times of day or night and all seasons of the year. It is one of the few delicate works of architecture that can absorb a bustling vulgar crowd without loss of dignity; a great city square which retains a feeling of animation when there are few people in it."

Napoleon called the Piazza San Marco "the finest drawing room in Europe."
Queen Charlotte Sound, Asbjorn Lonvig
Inspired by nature - how I imagine looking west from the mainland standing on the brink of Queen Charlotte Sound - and by Native Art - well aware that the symbolism doesn't belong to me - it's the heritage of the local people.
